Formed in 1898, Spring Lake Golf Club operated a 9-hole course up until a new 18-hole George C. Thomas Jr. layout arrived in 1911. A. W. Tillinghast substantially modified the course seven years later and this is the one that’s largely still in play today.
Spring Lake is a very welcoming club and is a joy to play. It's the type of course you could see yourself playing every day. The conditioning is excellent and there is a good variety of holes. The rough isn't penal so you can stray some and find it and continue on. It is well worth a visit if you get an invite. The green contours are easily read and there are some good slopes on a few greens.
